With only a few days days left until one of the coolest award ceremonies graces our site with its awesomeness, Polaris is giving you fine people a sampler of the ten amazingly-rad musicians on the Polaris 2011 Short List (stream all the albums here)! Today we shine the spotlight on Galaxie!
Who: Formed in 2002 in Montreal, Galaxie found that third times a charm with their album Tiger El Diesel getting a Polaris nom. It’s also the first album the band has released under the name Galaxie.
Sounds Like: Karkwa
Didjya Know: Galaxie were formerly Galaxie 500, but had to change their name after discovering another band already had dibs.
Hear now: Check out Galaxies’ Polaris Shortlisted album Tiger Et Diesel here!
Watch the 2011 Polaris Awards live online at MuchMusic.com on Monday, September 19 at 8pm ET and check out an encore presentation on broadcast on Saturday, September 24 at 10pm ET.
